Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The educational project of the school states that "It is to the success of students who orient our practices, trying to make the AECA an effective school, adopting the strategies needed to ensure this goal"; "The AECA is a school reference for students with Special Educational Needs, at the level of deafness." Our project should reach out to these realities and needs. The objectives of our project are interact in interventional, entrepreneurial and creative way, developing critical thinking about their city, promoting social inclusion, between deaf and hearing students; developing the skills and abilities to motivate and arouse in them respect, understanding and the European cultural heritage through the creation of a film that takes as a common thread architecture; discover the similarities and differences that are present within the European society. The number and profile of participants are 60 participants , each partner school will participate with 14 students of secondary education and 6 teachers who teach languages, History, Sign Language and ICT. From QR codes, they will be made to reading on ipads Baroque monuments designed by the patron, the architect Carlos Amarante. In order to read through QR codes, they will shoot up, each of the buildings and the translation will be done in different languages, French, English, Spanish and Portuguese sign language in order to ensure the dissemination of the project to a maximum of people. In view of the specificity of deaf students this will be the best way for them to access information. The partners of Castellammare di Stabia and Brussels and will do the same. From an architectural style, they will make known a particular historical epoch. Therefore students will better understand and discover the spot we have in common in Europe and as we influence each other for centuries at various levels. The most important output is the video: work with digital technology, video editing, music, subtitles, own creative design - drawing, making scenery, writing scripts for all participants. Another one is the blog, in wich Anita (italy) will upload photographs from the visits into a shared storage facility e.g. Dropbox or other similar facilities. On-going through the project. There will be also the evaluations from each visit: A questionnaire will be written and this will contribute to the overall evaluation, made by Mathieu. On-going through the project. The people involved in this process have experience in the management of projects, interpersonal conflicts and budgets; To manage potential risks videoconferencing sessions will be held each two months with the partner teams, between the coordinators of the projects; The skills of the students and teachers involved in the project will be assessed initially by the completion of exploratory meetings. Each period of three months, a report will be made. But, to ensure the quality of all the tasks performed during the project, we will divided into two principal strands of activity, which are closely related. The first of these is evaluation and the second quality assurance. Evaluation will be understood as relating to the areas mentioned above: operational issues relating to the way the project functions as a project, process and product issues relating to the match between outcomes and initial objectives, and how these outcomes are achieved, but it will give special emphasis to how the user developed competences from informal and non-formal spaces, and to valorization issues relating to sustainability and transfer of the project approach and outcomes. The intended impact on the participants is: To acquire knowledge on the work of the school patron, in particular the works erected in Braga, and the historical and artistic context in which they were produced; To enhance the local and regional cultural heritage; To acquire more ICT skills, developing innovative practices with QR codes; To develop the fluency in various foreign languages, making the participants aware of the importance of learning foreign/other languages; To contribute to raise the awareness of being part of a local, regional and European reality and of the importance of the fact that history and culture are essential parts of our lives; To know and project, beyond borders, the heritage and the city of Braga; To acquire teamwork skills and critical thinking.The impact at local and regional levels will be accomplished by making the material produced in several languages available to the organizations responsible for the promotion and dissemination of cultural heritage. At the national and European levels the portal etwinning will provide content about the work of Carlos Amarante. Through the website counter, where the videos will be housed, we can measure the number of visitors who are interested in our stuff, as well as the feedback from the already referred institutions regarding the interest and relevance of the material made available.
